I don't pick the Jeep up until Friday evening so these will have to do for now. :p This is their full GT500 exhaust with 1 7/8" primaries, 3" collectors/back and 300cpi metallic substrate cats.
Their Jeep exhaust will be 1 3/4" primaries, 3" collectors/back and 300cpi metallic cats. I'll have before/after dyno #s, in and out of car video/audio clips, and some quality shots of the stock vs. SWorks full exhaust up by Monday at the latest.

Enjoy:

Tips don't protrude past the bumper on production kits, this was a prototype:

I should find out the rest of the details (pricing included) later today. The dyno was down on Fri/Sat so we're going to strap it down this evening.

The dyno is still down, the part didn't arrive as it was supposed to today. They say they have a tracking number and it will be there 100% tomorrow. The wait is killing me to guys, sorry.

Kooks actually raised their price due to the cost of steel

Yeah, that followed my post by about 12 hours. I guess I kinda predicted the price change.....kinda. ;)

I'll get that info tomorrow as well. Yes, you are correct, longtubes to tailpipes with 300cpi metallic cats.

After another long day of waiting for a part (to repair dyno) which didn't arrive I had to head back home to get ready for a bus. trip to FL. Unfortunately this means I won't have pics/sound clips/after dyno numbers until next Tuesday when I get back. I could have picked the Jeep up and taken it to a different dyno but that wouldn't have told us much of anything pertaining to real gains. So I figured better late than never.
Anyway, here is pricing for their system. Sorry about the delay, trust me when I say I'm as bummed as anyone--I'm going through serious withdrawal. I'll repost this info in the new thread I create with the results/information.

According to tbyrne's website the catted kooks are $1659.00 and non catted $1569.00. To be honest I'm kind of surprised SWorks system is actually more affordable.

Long story short, I didn't bother to make the two hour trek over to SWorks from my parents house since I'd have to do it again to redyno anyway. I'm just leaving the Jeep there until I get back next week, at which time I'll get all info/pics/vids up asap. Again, sorry for the delay.
